Workshops | 2016 Workshops and  Portfolio Review

PhotoAlliance workshops & portfolio reviews are meant to foster a continuing conversation between the art and craft of photography and between the individuals that make things and the practice of creating.

We design specific opportunities to take pictures, talk about pictures and share work and ideas.  Groups are small, and the instructors are highly committed and engaged artists.  Generally the workshops are for all ages and all experiences. 

Our mission is to support the understanding, appreciation and creation of contemporary photography.
